Greetings from the Coors Events Center!
Well, as expected, Oklahoma lost its regular-season finale this morning against No. 23 Texas A&M.
That means Colorado and Texas Tech, set to wrap up the regular season here in about an hour, will meet again at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday in Kansas City to open up the Big 12 Tournament.
The winner of today’s game will be the No. 8 seed and the loser will be the No. 9 seed.
The Buffs (14-15, 5-10) need to sweep this two-game series with the Red Raiders (16-13, 4-11) in order to get back over .500 and eligible for the NIT.
“It’s always hard to beat a team twice,” Dwight Thorne, who will be honored on Senior Day, said. “In high school we beat a team twice in the regular season, once in the district tournament and then we lost to them with a chance to go to state.
“It’s tough to beat a team more than once, especially with the level we’re at.”
The winner of Wednesday’s game will play Kansas on Thursday in the quarterfinals.
Today’s prediction: Colorado 82, Texas Tech 75
